“Valley of the Eagles” Nature Tour

Perfect for the inquisitive traveler and your best opportunity to photograph bald eagles in the wild.

Revive your sense of wonder on this comprehensive bus and walking exploration of the area known for the greatest winter gathering of bald eagles on earth!

This unique tour explores six wildlife habitats including ocean, estuary, river, lake, muskeg, and temperate rain forest. Follow the route of spawning salmon, from the ocean to fresh water. Frequent stops allow guides to spot even the most reclusive animals. At the estuary, see eagles soaring, diving for salmon, and raising their young in their nests. Marvel at the wildlife through powerful spotting scopes, essential for observing our nation’s symbol eye-to-eye and mountain goats in the alpine meadows. Your journey continues beside the enchanting Chilkoot River, the ancestral fishing grounds of the Tlingit people, where brown bears may be seen meandering along the riverbanks and estuary. Stop along the shore of a picturesque mountain lake before embarking on a nature walk under the old-growth trees where you’ll experience the sights, sounds, scents, and even tastes of the world’s largest temperate rain forest.
